Bernie ][ The Rescue is an Apple IIGS emulator (and I believe also emulates the Apple IIe as well, though I've never tested that). Aside from Sweet16 (for Mac OS X), this is easily the best Apple IIGS emulator for Classic Mac OS.

This collection features Bernie 3.0, along with every single version of Bernie ever released, and for those running Mac OS 7.6.1 or below, Appearance Manager is also included. Lots and lots of documentation and support for those who have trouble getting Bernie going is also included (Reading the support documentation requires a browser, Classilla is recommended to read with).

For what it is worth, I unearthed Bernie's old website via the Wayback Machine, and Bernie is/was considered freeware, so I feel it should be alright to post this. If not, please feel free to revise the following:

This serial has been tested to work on Bernie 2.6, and should work fine with 2.5.x as well.
Name: KIRI
Serial: mmbbtbmmiacm

See also:

PPC only.
Versions 2.6 and above should work on PPC Mac OS 8 all the way up to Mac OS 9.2.2
Versions 2.5.x and below should run on PPC Mac OS 7.6.1 and possibly below, however, the Appearance Manager is required, which is included.
Requires 256 colors.

Yes, I'm aware Bernie was shareware in the past, IIGS_User. That was a poor choice of words on my part. Before Bernie's site went down, according to Wayback, the Bernie folks had declared it as freeware sometimes in the mid 2000s. But either way, their site is long gone. Still nice to have this big collection dedicated to Bernie, should help a lot of people get started with it, since it includes so much stuff! Smile

Sweet16 is the successor of Bernie ][ The Rescue, using the same code base.
Bernie was not freeware, but it was shareware. In the past, I paid for it.
Probably later versions were freeware, which I don't know, but 3.0 was available in beta stage only.
